Premiere of Omkara attended by the who’s who of bollywood
Vishal Bharadwaj’s Omkara.html> Omkara has received rave reviews; everyone has appreciated the film, the performances and the director’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello. In an age where there seems to be cut throat competition in bollywood, where stars vie with each other to get the best roles and filmmakers do everything for publicity, it is a complete rare sight to see some of the top actors and filmmakers of bollywood attending the premiere of a film all under one roof. On 27 July, the premiere of Omkara saw a host of bollywood stars and filmmakers attend the event at the Yash Raj studios.
Shahrukh Khan attended the premiere of Omkara along with his better half Gauri Khan and though Gauri came in earlier Shahrukh was seen making an appearance later, both seemed to be enjoying the film immensely. Aamir Khan and wife Kiran Rao too attended the event both dressed in casual and comfortable wear. Director Karan Johar too was present to catch a glimpse of this much talked about film. Producer Ritesh Sidhwani and director Farhan Akhtar who have just wrapped up their film Don were also seen at the premiere of Omkara. One of the main reasons why the stars were seen relaxing and enjoying the screening of the film was that very few media people were invited for the special premiere of Omkara.
Director Mani Ratnam who is rarely seen at social do’s also came for the event. Actress Kareena Kapoor who is part of the Omkara star cast was seen personally taking care of beau Shahid Kapur’s parents who also attended the premiere. Shahid made a late entry but nonetheless came as he couldn’t miss girlfriend Kareena’s much talked about film for anything else. The pretty Priyanka Chopra was seen with her entire family including mom, dad and brother in tow. Others who were seen at the premiere were Konkana Sen Sharma, Arbaaz Khan along with wife Malaika Arora Khan, Amrita Arora, Sanjay Kapoor and Maheep, Neelam, Bunty Walia, Soham, Ramesh Taurani, Ken Ghosh, Ahmed Khan and several other faces from bollywood.
Everyone loved the movie and it received a standing ovation by all. Earlier this year both Ajay Devgan and Vivek Oberoi were seen promoting Omkara at the Cannes Film Festival .
